January Work in Progress Layouts

I'm way late in sharing my layouts I made with the January Work in Progress kit! Back to school week after winter break always wipes me out, and I had three late nights, with Weight Watchers, my book club, and the Color Combos Galore reveal.

I had planned to work mainly with the main kit, and I bought the Project kit because it had the new Crate Paper Snow Day, and I didn't have any of that. Once I started working with these fun papers, I couldn't stop working with those delicious candy-colored papers and whimsical accents!

Here's one of the pages. I added a little spray ink to the side. I love that little chipboard string of lights! Everything on this page came in the add-on kit except for the spray ink, glittery leaves (which I bought at Michael's after Christmas last year), and the micro-brads.

Here are a couple of detail photos. This one shows those sparkly leaves I was talking about. Don't you love that BasicGrey fabric brad with the jewel in the center? A whole pack came in the kit, so I have lots more to work with.

I needed some sparkle at the top, so I stuck three Glue Dots on my cardstock and pressed some Martha Stewart glitter onto them, which in real life matches the sparkly leaves.

Here's another page I made with the project kit. This is a page for the album I'm making about my weight-loss journey.

And here are some close-ups. I stitched around that circle multiple times and then added dots of Enamel Accents by Ranger.

I added some sparkle by applying Stickles to some of the chipboard pieces that came in the kit.

 Like I said, I got carried away with the bright colors of the Crate Paper in the project kit. I will share the other pages later.

So I only made one page with the main kit, but here is that page. I altered the picture in Picnik to give it an artsy look because it wasn't a great photo.

And a couple of details... I loved the trims Trish included in the kit. So pretty! I added green snowflakes cut out of one of the Fancy Pants papers that came in the project kit, along with some old Jolee's snowflakes. I love those things and I always pick up a pack whenever I see them. They're sometimes hard to find!

I pleated the satin ribbon that came in the kit and stitched it onto the page.

These were really fun kits to work with! Sorry they're sold out--you gotta snatch them when you see them because WIP kits tend to sell out quickly!

Thank you for stopping by and reading about my pages!
